How do I earn credit from the CTE Internship Program?

Register for the semester-long class worth a half (.5) credit for high school, requiring 40 internship hours per semester.
  • The class can be taken during any class period (A1-B8).
  • Students can take up to two class periods in one semester for one (1) full credit, requiring 80 internship hours/semester.
  • Students can take this class for a total of up to two (2) credits. If a student decides to take this class for two different semesters, they will need to change their place and/or type of internship.
This is a pass/fail class.  Students will pass the class by:
  • Completing an Onboarding Certification during the first week of the semester
  • Achieving 40 internship hours/semester per .5 credit
  • Finishing the required coursework
  • Attending scheduled workshops
Be taking, or have taken, at least one CTE class related to your internship.

How do I find an internship?

  • Students typically set up their own internships because this helps both the you and the business mentor decide if the internship will be a good fit.
  • Contact Mrs. Stevens if you need help finding one.
  • Hospital internships are available, but are very limited. Contact Mrs. Hollie Stevens if you would like to learn more.
